Biochemical and Molecular Engineering XVII Conference
Date:12/20/2010

Started in 1978, the Biochemical Engineering Conference is the premier venue for unveiling research at the cutting-edge of biological sciences and engineering. The primary goal of this international conference has always been to bring together academic and industrial scientists and engineers from diverse backgrounds to share insights on how to tackle critical problems in biochemical, biomedical and biomolecular engineering. As it enters its fourth decade, BME XVII will showcase progress in emerging frontiers at the forefront of major societal needs. The venue for the meeting will be the beautiful Bell Harbor Conference Center in the heart of Seattle, Washington.

Keynote Presentations
Dr. Doug Cameron, Alberti Advisors LLC
Biochemical Engineering and the Re-emerging Bio-based Chemical Industry
Professor David Baker, University of Washington
Design of Folding, Binding and Catalysis

A highlight of the conference will be the two keynote presentations from Dr. Doug Cameron of Alberti Advisors LLC and Prof. David Baker of the University of Washington. Doug Cameron is the Founder and Managing Director at Alberti Advisors LLC and is a prominent scientist, businessman and thought leader in the areas of clean technology and sustainable agriculture. His career has spanned business, finance and academia, including stints at Khosla Ventures, Piper Jaffray, Cargill, Stanford University and the University of Wisconsin, Madison. In 2009, Doug was the recipient of the prestigious Raphael Katzen Award for his contributions in furthering the deployment and commercialization of biotechnology to produce fuels and chemicals from renewable resources. David Baker is an HMMI Investigator and Professor in the University of Washington. He pioneered the Rosetta protein structure modeling platform and harnessed the computing power of Rosetta@home to make significant advances in protein-structure prediction and design. Baker won the AAAS Newcomb Cleveland Prize in 2005 for engineering the novel protein fold Top7. He recently created "Foldit," a multiplayer online protein-folding game.
